Oprah Winfrey’s castoffs have fetched $600,000.
In what was described as "an epic yard sale" that took place Saturday in California — and, in classic Oprah style, all for charity — 10 percent of the total take, $60,000, went for a set of six 18th century Louis XVI armchairs with hand-embroidered details.
The Los Angeles Times also noted that the Oprah touch sent prices on the most mundane items skyrocketing — including a teapot that went for $1,000.
The treasures came from the 59-year-old media mogul’s homes in Hawaii, Indiana and California. All proceeds from the sale benefited Winfrey’s Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.
Single no more
Chris Kirkpatrick tied the knot on Saturday and the whole ’NSYNC band was there to help the 42-year-old singer say "bye, bye, bye" to his single days.
Justin Timberlake, Lance Bass, JC Chasez and Joey Fatone all joined Kirkpatrick in Orlando, doubling as groomsmen and ushers for his wedding to longtime girlfriend Karly Skladany, 29, according to Us Weekly.
